A smile is worth a thousand words!

Look who is walking around! She walks around the house, not to get anywhere, but mostly just to walk... and walk... and walk! Within a week, Tess has gone from a couple tentative wobbly steps to walking everywhere! And if we take her outside to walk on the grass under the sun, then she actually does it with a grin and a giggle!

Today we all turned up the music and danced around to The Bare Naked Ladies. Watching Tess move her little arms and move around with us was a dream! She just continues to get better and better! We're gonna prove all the doctors and diagnosises WRONG!

And Jujube just lights up a room with his smile! Papa is still his favorite person, (although her tolerates me now and even likes me now and then) and when Papa walks in from work Jujube greets him with, "Hi Dad!" When our therapists leave he tells them, "All done! Bye Bye!" He's picked up baby sign pretty easily, faster than my bio kiddos in fact, and now his speech seems to be coming along too.

I don't think I could possibly be prouder of my sweeties!
And the REALLY crazy part... tonight while Papa and I were giving the little kids a bath, Boo asked me how many girls we had in our family. I said we had both 4 girls and 4 boys in our family. I added, "It's a tie!" Then I off-handedly added, "We might
just need a tie breaker!" Without even a little hesitation, he said "Absolutely!" Not now, not even soon, but after only 5 months home, I think we could do this all again some day! I certainly hope VietNam fixes its adoption program with the US. I don't think I could bare to adopt from any other country.


  1. Run Tess, Run! These two are going to add so much to this world. Wonderful, wonderful...

  2. I am so happy to see that they are both doing so well. I really think Sasha has some mild eating issues. Hopefully they will improve as she gets older. Right now she never seems able to get enough food. People think it's funny to watch such a small girl eat all of the time, but I know there very well be more going on...
    Take care,
    Stacey and Sasha

  3. HEY! Did you read that last sentence again!?!?!??!!

    You CAN and you ARE!! Amen!!!!!
